Some pancakes with your bacon? Cops search for man who tried to run down deputy

17 Mar

Police are searching for David Andrew Herr, a man investigators say tried to run over an Adams County deputy after leading cops on a chase late Tuesday night.

The incident began around 10:30 p.m. when adeputy sheriff attempted to stop a vehicle near Pecos Street and Orchard Drive for a traffic violation.

The driver of older model, four-door, Buick, began to elude the deputy and a chase began.

The chase was called off the chase near East 70th Avenue and Washington Street in unincorporated Adams County.

A short time later, deputy saw the Buick turn west from Washington on to East 64th Street, which dead-ends just east of Interstate 25, according to Sgt. Candi Baker, spokeswoman for the Adams County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies converged on the area. A woman, identified as Kristin Akin, 24, left the vehicle carrying a 6-month-old baby who was in a car seat.

At that point, said investigators, Herr put the vehicle in reverse and drove through a fence at a high rate of speed. Herr then drove forward, aiming the vehicle at a deputy.

As Herr, 25, drove at the officer, the deputy opened fire.

Deputies then followed the Buick into downtown Denver, but abandoned the pursuit as it neared Civic Center.

Neither Herr nor the vehicle have been located. Authorities don’t know if Herr, who lives in Adams County, was injured by the gunfire.
